    The atexit function will call a chosen function at the end of a program, the nice thing about this function is that it will call something useful such as garbage collection and saving routines even if you abort by way of exit().
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    void end( void )
      printf ( "The end function was called\n" ); 
    int main ( void )
      atexit ( end );
      printf ( "Normal processing\n" );
      return EXIT_SUCCESS;
    My best code is written with the delete key.
